The storm, the second to hit the UK in as many weeks, has unleashed strong winds and heavy rain over the weekend.

Parts of Wales saw more than a month”s rainfall in 48 hours from Friday to Sunday morning.

The Met Office said that 156.2mm of rain had fallen over this period at Crai Reservoir in Powys, Wales, well above Wales” average monthly rainfall of 111.1mm in February.

The village of Nantgarw, Rhondda Cynon Taff, near Cardiff, is among the worst effected in the UK.

Mason said the weather was “unprecedented,” adding he had “never experienced anything like this before.”

Georgie Timmins, crisis response officer at the British Red Cross, said: “The storms are expected to continue, and water is anticipated to be at peak levels on Monday and Tuesday. It is important people are ready should the worst happen.”
